    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Perhaps it wasn't perfect and despite the recent allegations, I certainly believe the CAF made great strides since 2015 on institutional front. We are in a much better place we were even in the early 2010s.

    New IRP / Move policy-effective Dec 01, 2017 [Merged]

    The member should pick up the cost above and over what would have been covered but no more!

    New IRP / Move policy-effective Dec 01, 2017 [Merged]

    If your F&E go into SIT for 7 days, DND would have to cover reload/move/unload. Not sure why they would not cover reload/move/unload for a SIT of more than is covered by the policy.

    From Unmanned to Uncrewed: Moving away from gender-based terminology

    Does it really matter that much if we slowly change our lexicon to use more inclusive language?

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    We were able to cut that list down in our community, leaving only a handful of staff jobs, directly related to fighter operations, to be filled. We are beyond the critical level however (somewhere around 50-60% PML. It may have gotten better since last year because of COVID).

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    That's a very shallow understanding of how we employ aircraft. At some point, the type of airplane is irrelevant. The conversion is 2-3 months/15-20 hours. What is important is understanding the employment part. We've had very good success doing exactly that: taking F-16 drivers and making...

    Initiatives launched to retain and increase RCAF personnel experience levels

    The biggest factor right now is retention, not training. We can't train ourselves out of the whole we are in. We need experienced people to keep crewing the aircraft and teach the new generations. If you look at the RCAF experience levels vs other NATO/FVEY countries, you'll see we are WAY...

    Change of Command - RAWC 2021: Are We "getting it right"?

    That was one of the roles, not the key role. The unit’s mandate was fight test. He retained the authority (as the flight test authority) for that.

    Change of Command - RAWC 2021: Are We "getting it right"?

    Operational mindset, to me, is synonymous with primacy of operations and a fighting spirit. As far as staff guiding commanders, people have to be honest with themselves. We can't be experts in everything therefore, we need people to guide our decisions (that's also true for "operators" who...

    Posting within PLD Zone HELP

    How do you prove it is fake? It could be a legitimate lease. Son pays X to parents. Parents give X to son as a gift each month. That would be called exploiting a loophole, which is unethical but not illegal.

    Change of Command - RAWC 2021: Are We "getting it right"?

    St-Louis was the COS at 1 CAD in the 2011/2012 timeframe. I have no real concerns for non-“operators” to be in such positions, even Wing Command as long as they have an operational mindset and are surrounded by strong staff to guide them. What is more important is for them is to have an...

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    If that was the case and was known, I doubt he would have been "reassigned to a staff position within the military intelligence division."

    The RCR, who will be the new Col in Chief?

    You mean the Queen is directly involved or her representative?

    The RCR, who will be the new Col in Chief?

    If he is not representing the Crown, why would they be involved in this process? Is the Queen directly involved with other similar appointments?

    CANFORGEN 040/19 - Patches and T-shirts

    Perhaps but if people are willing to pay for them because it makes them feel part of the team (whatever team that may be), was the RCAF wrong in allowing this? My only reservation is with the staff time those initiatives eat.

    Blame Game USMC Style

    Yep. Disperse responsibilities across many organizations and no one is actually accountable.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    So, you had a bad experience with one GOFO and that paints every officer, from OCdt/NCdt to General/Admiral? For Vance, very reliable sources painted a very different picture.

    New IRP / Move policy-effective Dec 01, 2017 [Merged]

    Tell me, in the policy, where it states that loading/transport/unloading must be paid by the member? It merely states that storage costs (in excess of TNL/IL&M) must be paid by member.

    Sexual Misconduct Allegations in The CAF

    Someone could probably find something to charge someone with but I am pretty sure those charges would be tossed out quickly.
